Does Insomnia Cause Me To Lose Weight?
I am 20 years old, I have been suffering from insomnia for the past few months, it is very difficult to sleep, and my weight has increasingly shrunk, even though I have been eating regularly even diligently drinking milk. But why is my weight decreasing?
Hello Charnurul! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Sleep is an important requirement for humans. Difficulty sleeping (insomnia) can cause insufficient sleep, so a person can experience fatigue during the day, difficulty concentrating, loss of interest, irritability, and anxiety and sadness. This disorder can cause quality of life disorders in general. Lack of activity during the day can also cause decreased muscle weight and weak weight to increase. Muscle is heavier than fat for the same size. If you look in the mirror, you might look fat or stay the same, but you are losing weight. This happens when your muscles are replaced by fat. If in general your body does look thinner or weight loss is happening in large quantities, you should see a doctor. Your weight loss may be a sign of a more serious illness, not just a result of insomnia.
Try to get better rest by applying the following methods.
Avoid sleeping during the day, even if you are sleepy. Sleeping in the afternoon or evening will make it difficult to sleep at night. In fact, an important rest is at night.
Get up and sleep at the same time every day, even if it's a holiday.
Turn off your lights when you sleep.
Increase physical activity during the day, such as brisk walking or cycling.
Avoid all activities with the screen (watching TV, typing on a computer, playing computer, playing cellphone) when before bedtime.
Try to keep your bedroom temperature as comfortable as possible.
Sleep in a quiet place.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
